With new scams and mind-boggling trickery, Jamtara: Sabka Number Aayega's second season returns and promises to be louder and stronger.
The show's teaser, which has been released on Thursday, demonstrates how politics and cybercrime are intertwined because of how creative and varied Jamtara's youthful con artists have become at phishing. It demonstrates an enlarged phishing scenario where schoolchildren are recruited to lay the foundation for a significant fraud.
The trailer features Gudiya (Monika Panwar) running against Brajesh Bhan (Amit Sial), who holds the opinion that money, not leaders, governs the nation. Along with Sparsh Srivastav, who plays Sunny, and Anshumaan Pushkar, who portrays Rocky, SP Dolly (Aksha Pardasany), Jamtara's sane voice, are returning. Seema Pahwa, who plays Ganga Devi in the current season, and up-and-coming actor Ravi Chahal have come on board.
Opening up about the premise of the Jamtara season 2, director Soumendra Padhi said,
“Over the last few years, we’ve seen a huge uptick in the number of phishing scams. All of us at some point have received a call asking for our OTP number or CVV code. A number of the young people in Jamtara took advantage of unsuspecting people who weren’t tech-savvy, successfully building a hub for endless cash, with a mobile address book and quick dial. Season 1 saw huge success. We’ve been humbled by the response and how word spread. The ability it had to also educate whilst entertaining people has been incredible."
Soumendra Padhi, a director who has won a National Award, and Trishant Srivastava collaborated on the script for Jamtara. Tipping Point at Viacom18 Studios created it, and starting on September 23, it will stream on Netflix.
